Paddle for a purpose

Posted in : News on by : Around DB Comments: 0

On June 19, three outrigger paddlers from Hong Kong Outrigger Canoe Club and Pure Ocean Connection are set to circumnavigate Lantau island

to raise money for three ocean-based Hong Kong charities. Starting and finishing in Discovery Bay, the determined ladies will battle against the waves to paddle 70km in solo and double canoes.

A crowdfunding page has been set up for people to donate money and a fundraising target of HK$60,000 has been set. 100% of the funds raised will be equally split between the following three charities:

  1. Sailability Hong Kong – based at Hebe Haven Yacht Club, the charity provides sailing and other water-based activities for Hong Kong’s disabled community.
  2. Splash Hong Kong – Splash conducts free learn-to-swim and water safety courses for targeted communities who may not have access or financial resources for swim lessons.
  3. Plastic Free Seas – a Hong Kong-based environmental charity dedicated to advocating change in the way we all view and use plastics in society today, through education and action campaigns.
